Eager to get started? Here's an early look at some of the characters you'll be coming face-to-face with in the game:
One of the smartest and most feared villains in the DC Universe, Lex Luthor's genius is rivalled only by his incredible hatred of Superman. His position - financial powerhouse, criminal mastermind, and even President of the United States of America - has only promoted his selfish, megalomaniacal agenda.
Now, as the alien super intelligent cyborg Brainiac attacks, Luthor feeds the growing anti-alien sentiment to help re-legitimise his global conglomerate LexCorp™ and its ever-growing paramilitary division.
"Born on a Monday..." The part zombie, part plant, centuries-old half human being that goes by the name of Solomon Grundy may have a name associated with a 19th century nursery rhyme, but don't let that fool you. Filled with confused anger, Grundy's personality ranges from rampaging monster to calculating and cold-blooded villain. And with his enhanced strength and immortality, Grundy is a dangerous threat to even DC Universe's strongest heroes.
Solomon Grundy has been seen skulking in swamps, sewers and abandoned buildings in both Metropolis and Gotham City. Beware - for should you hear the low growl of "Solomon Grundy, born on a Monday..." the nursery rhyme may be the last thing you ever hear...
A genetic condition changed Waylon Jones into the hulking reptilian Killer Croc. Brutish and deadly, his cold-blooded and destructive rage comes from years spent in Arkham Asylum™ and Blackgate Prison™. Now he is more animal than man. Travellers near the Gotham City waterfront, sewers, and swamps, beware...
A creature created on Superman's home planet of Krypton, Doomsday is a destructive force of nature. Bred to embody hatred and rage, his sole reason for living is to extinguish all other life.
Born on the Planet Krypton during a time when only the strongest creatures could survive, Doomsday was the result of a rapid natural selection process bred to hate all life. His body is covered with vicious bony spurs that can harm even Superman's skin, and his endurance makes him almost impossible to kill.
Doomsday is the epitome of villainous power and strength. With the ability to regenerate after every battle, he becomes bigger and stronger... so no opponent of his has ever defeated him twice. A fight with Doomsday is one few will survive intact.
